The man of the match in the Borussia Dortmund U19s' 9-1 Bundesliga triumph against Fortuna Düsseldorf was Julian Rijkhoff. The Dutchman notched five goals and set up another. "The team is improving tactically and individually on a monthly basis," said delighted coach Mike Tullberg.

The result saw league leaders BVB extend their cushion over second-placed Schalke 04 to seven points. "We set out to play with concentration, speed and high intensity. We put that into practice, in addition to producing some lovely moves and scoring some spectacular goals," said a highly satisfied Tullberg as he reflected on the match. The other goals were scored by Göktan Gürpüz, Jamie Bynoe-Gittens, Tom Rothe and Bradley Fink. 

BVB will round off the first phase of the Bundesliga season when they travel to Alemannia Aachen on Sunday. wiwi
